DigiTimes writes Intel is going to release the 945GC chipset in the first quarter of next year along with the Pentium E1000 processor family.
The addition of Intel's entry-level chipset offering is intended to ensure a sufficient supply of chipsets for its desktop CPUs in case ATI Technologies suspends its own supply of chipsets for Intel-based motherboards, the makers said. Before AMD's ATI acquisition was announced, Intel had less concern about a chipset shortage, thanks to capacity support from ATI, the makers added.

ATI has promised that supply of its RD600, RD500, RS600, RC410 and RC415 chipsets will not be suspended abruptly, said the makers, noting that the graphics-chip vendor has also engaged to continue its chipset supply for Intel CPU-based motherboards.
